Full description

Previously recorded under NHER 8613.

November 1978. Visit.
Barn of alternate brick and flint, thatched, seems contemporary.
E. Rose (NAU), 16 November 1978.

The barn has dormers to a hayloft which is supported on chamfered and tongue stopped beams.
2 tiers butt purlins and 2 tiers collars.
Why should a hayloft need dormers? Is this a case of accommodation for workers being provided above a barn?
E. Rose (NLA), 7 October 1998.
